Help Me (Gussow.mov)
INTERMEDIATE / ADVANCED INTERMEDIATE. A video tutorial focused on the 12-bar harmonica solo from Sonny Boy Williamsons most famous composition, Help Me. Transcribed and arranged by Adam Gussow of Satan and Adam.
Its hard to overstate the importance of this solo, and this song. Its not just a top-25 desert-island cut for blues harp players around the world, but its arguably the one blues harp classic that other blues players--guitarists, vocalists, you name it--all know. It comes up at virtually every jam session. It is part of the blues worlds common stock.
Technical challenges include brisk triplets in a 3-against-2 rhythm; warbles; staccato (chuck-chuck) chording; and a bit of tricky timing. This video takes you inside the guts of Sonny Boys style.
Harp key: B-flat
Note: a PDF tab for this lesson is also available.
